I waited backstage, my arm wrapped securely around Lilli. I was so nervous. She probably could feel my heart pounding. I know I could.
A woman walked towards us and informed me that I was up next. She ushered me closer to the stage, forcing me to let go of Lilli. I took a deep breath. I was so scared. Especially by someone. He's pretty harsh on each of the competitors. What if I wasn't good enough? What if they didn't believe I could do it?
I walked onstage, trying not to shake.
'What's your name?' Louis Walsh asked me.
'Niall.' I replied, sounding more confident than I felt.
After a few questions, I was granted permission to start singing. I waited for the music to come on, and performed So Sick.
I gotta change my answering machine
Now that I'm alone
Cuz right now it says that we
Can't come to the phone
And I know it makes no sense
Cuz you walked out the door
But it's the only way I hear your voice anymore
Simon held his hand up, a signal for me to stop singing. My heart sank as he did so.
I had got one no so far, and one more person left to decide. Katy Perry. She buried her head in her hands, unsure of what to do. I clasped my hands together. I had to get through. It was my dream. I had to.
I telepathically begged her to say yes. To make my family proud. To make my friends proud. To make Lilli proud. I had to.
'Yes. Of course, you're through.' Katy said, after a silence that felt longer than it really was.
I cheered. 'Thank you so much.' I said, walking off stage. I ran over to Lilli, who was waiting to meet me, and I threw her in the air and caught her. She hugged me tightly.
I did it. I got through.
He did it. One step closer.
I AM SO SORRY I HAVEN'T BEEN UPDATING!!!!!!!! ARRRRRRRRRR YOU CAN KILL ME IF YOU WANT.
No, don't do that.
So, I just wanted to say, thanks for sticking with the story, even though I haven't updated in an eternity.
I also wanted to say that you do NOT have permission to kill me, no matter what I tell you :)
